Wolverines Still Bitter Over App State

A great story that I just couldn’t pass up.  Of course, we all remember the 34-32 upset of Appalachian State over the Michigan Wolverines (in Michigan, mind you) just last season.  And if you somehow forgot, just check out the picture above, as it’s all you need to know.

But while that occured almost 12 months ago, it appears that some Michigan alums are still taking things to heart.

From Appfan.com:

This week, [ASU Grad Kerry] Brown is among a slew of roster hopefuls who might as well be called hair because there is a good chance they will be cut.

But I figured that after beating Michigan, Brown must think that anything’s possible. I walked over and introduced myself, but when I extended my hand, I noticed his were both holding helmets.

“This one’s Jon Jansen’s,” Brown said, referring to the Redskins’ veteran tackle who is a–gulp–Michigan alum. “He came over to me and said, ‘Hey, rook. Carry my helmet. Where’s Appalachian State now?’”

Where’s Appalachian State?  Try Boone, NC… just look for the trophies.

I’d be willing to bet that those 1-AA championships are nice to have and all, but that win over UM will ring forever.  I mean, do fans set up web sites specifically for the banners?  I think not.  But the upset of the century?  You got it.

    Not just kick, we also drop the elbow…from the top rope.

  • CivilizedLife

    “From the top rope,” he says! Ohio State fans…WWE enthusiasts…top of the rope but definitely not top of the food chain!

    In Eli’s defense, it could have been any brand of professional wrestling…

    I’ll kick a m1chigAAn fan whenever possible. Usually in his vagina.

    If I was ashamed of being associated with wrestling I certainly would not have used such an obvious reference, good try though! The stuff on local access in Cleveland is too hilarious to miss.

    The amount of content on biggestupsetever.com is pretty ridiculous as well.

    Watch your language. You may not say the ‘M’ word, however you may refer to them as ‘The team up north’
